Sisterly Love

Hi guys! This weather is just incredible, isn’t it? I didn’t realize that it was so nice out today until I met my sister, Caroline, for a walk after work.

Caroline is in town from Charleston, so I was pumped that she was able to stop by. We walked about 4 miles (in shorts and short-sleeves!) and then went to Souper Jenny’s for dinner.


They’re only open for dinner on Tuesday nights, and they serve different things every week. Pastas, sandwiches, salads, you name it!


Caroline and I are so predictable- we both got My Dad’s Turkey Chili. I order it almost every time I go!


I don’t know what’s in there, but it is GOOD! (Jenny has a cookbook, but I’ve never looked to see if this recipe is in it.)


Random picture- So, the road that I take to get to my apartment has been partially blocked for the last two days. Why? Because they’re filming Owen Wilson’s new movie- Hall Pass– at Johnny’s Hideaway.

This cracks me up because Johnny’s is an original Buckhead institution- think 70s decor, strong drinks, dancing, and lots of Cougars!

Johnny’s is behind the trucks…


Next, Caroline and I headed over to Jujubees for some frozen yogurt. She was over my picture-taking at this point and clearly ahead of me. 😉


I got a small plain & passion fruit swirl, with strawberries, coconut and mochi on top. Nothing short of amazing and almost worth the $5 that I spent on it. That’s saying something because I’m a lot more frugal than you probably think that I am. 😉



Caroline doesn’t understand why I would want to “tell strangers about my life,” and for that, I’m posting her picture on here. Ha!


What are your favorite ice cream toppings? I have a new love for sweetened coconut, and I love chocolate chips on/in just about anything!

It’s raining, it’s pouring… it just can’t seem to stop raining in Atlanta!

I just have some highlights from the weekend- it was my 26th birthday yesterday and I fully enjoyed it! I loved that my birthday fell on a Saturday this year… that meant that I got to celebrate all weekend.

On Friday night, we went to see the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Trombone Shorty at Smith’s Olde Bar. The music was great, but what I loved more was that the upstairs was non-smoking! I don’t like going out that much because Atlanta is behind on the times and smoky bars DRIVE. ME. NUTS.

Trombone Shorty!


On Saturday, Tobey and I went to Souper Jenny’s for lunch. Yes, the line was out the door and yes, it was worth it. I got “My Dad’s Turkey Chili.”


After lunch, we went to Lululemon, where I proceeded to try on everything in the store. (Hey! It was my birthday!) I’ve never bought anything before because I’ve heard that it’s addicting, so I may become an addict now. I got a pair of Groove pants (they’re being hemmed so I don’t have them yet), a tank top, and a gym bag. Have you been bitten by the Lululemon bug yet?

Oh, and there has been plenty of this all weekend…


Red velvet, red velvet!


One piece per day keeps the doctor away, right? I sent the rest of the cake home with my dad and brother tonight… and mom, too, if they don’t finish it before she gets to it. 🙂


This morning, we went to Rosebud for brunch. How cute is this ketchup bottle?


I ordered the breakfast bowl- it had grits, bacon, cherry tomatoes, poached egg and cheddar cheese in it. Total comfort food in a bowl.


Tonight, I met my family for church and then we went to Atlanta Fish Market for dinner. I didn’t take any pictures because the lighting was so low – so low that the menus were hard to read – but I had the chopped salad and the california roll.

I hope that you have a great start to the week…
